What is Puffins Galore?
Puffins Galore! is a trail of 40 artist-decorated puffin sculptures to be located in key locations from Flamborough in the north to Spurn Point in the south. The scheme is modelled on the highly successful Hull projects: Larkin with Toads and A Moth for Amy.
The Puffins themselves are made of fibreglass and will stand 1500mm tall. Artists from Yorkshire and beyond will create unique designs to reflect either a local theme or message such as coastal and wildlife conservation, climate change and green energy.
The project aims to increase cultural tourism to the East Coast, encouraging visitors to explore the whole trail of sculptures at each location.
May to October 2022 Puffin Parade – follow the Puffin trail
November 2022 Grand Puffin Auction – proceeds to local wildlife charities
Further event details to be announced
Who Will Benefit?
The trail is estimated to reach out to and bring in an additional 150,000 visitors to the area, benefiting local businesses and accommodation providers.
